  7. 7. Mental Health Is Essential To Overall Health
  8. 8. What is mental health? <ul><ul><li>How you think, feel, and act in order to face life’s situations… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For example, how you handle stress. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How you look at yourself, your life and the people in your life… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For example, how you relate to others. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How you evaluate your options and make choices… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>For example: how you make decisions. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Key component of mental health: what you think. <ul><li>Thinking is the cognitive component of mental health. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s important to recognize your thoughts and to determine if they are reasonable for the situation. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, a friend invites another friend to go to a movie. Do you think “That’s OK. She can do that. I know we’ll get together another time.” Or, do you think “She’s not my friend anymore. A real friend would always invite only me…” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It’s important how you respond to your thoughts. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do you let negative, damaging thoughts continue or do you stop them? For example, if you think you’ve been slighted by a friend, do you go over and over in your mind that the friend is hurtful, disloyal, uncaring… </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Thoughts produce feelings in us. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Key component of mental health: what you feel. <ul><li>Feeling is the emotional / sensory component of mental health. </li></ul><ul><li>Thoughts produce feelings. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Thinking the same thoughts over and over in your mind will create feelings – negative thoughts will create more negative feelings and positive thoughts will create more positive feelings. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It’s important to recognize your feelings. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, “I am angry and upset!” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It’s important to understand where these feelings are coming from. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ie: your thought processes and how you interpret what’s happened. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It’s important how you respond to your feelings. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ I feel this way so it’s right to feel this way.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ask yourself questions such as: “Is this a legitimate feeling that is appropriate for the situation?” </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Key component of mental health: how you act. <ul><li>Action is the behavioral component of mental health. </li></ul><ul><li>Thoughts and feelings result in actions. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, you dwell in your mind about how your friend has slighted you until you feel really angry and then you take an action as a result of your thoughts and feelings. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Actions can be unhealthy. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, you could pick up the phone and yell at your friend and damage the relationship. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, you could go out for a smoke or take a drink and hide away in your room. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Actions can be healthy. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For example, you could talk over your thoughts and feelings with your friend or with someone else who could help. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. Thoughts, feelings, and actions have impact. <ul><li>Since you were a young child, you realized that your behavior had consequences. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You touched a hot stove and were burned. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You disobeyed a rule and were disciplined. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It’s important to also realize that there are consequences to the way we think and feel. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Why is mental health so important? <ul><li>Here are just a few reasons… </li></ul>
